Sluice Farm/RGW

New sea defences between Sluice Farm & RGW, along the Rhosog Fawr reen. Work hasn't started yet, but preparations are on-going. The seawall path is closed between Sluice Farm & county boundary, although I went through no problem, crutches and all. Reading the bumph, it states a Tabb's Gout, which I take to be the small inlet more commonly known as the Sluice outlet of the Torwick reen.

Llanishen Res. Update

Llanishen Res, taken on 17/06/2015. Extent of water since last photos taken back in Sept. (see previous posting). I was told that the sluice gates are closed because of the blockage of branches & weeds etc. This is due to be cleaned and the water slowly let out. When this will happen is unknown at present. There were signs of breeding Mallard, Coot, Moorhen & Little Grebe, also several Tufted Duck were seen but no proof of any breeding. The Reservoir is out of bounds to all, however Lisvane can still be viewed from the carpark area. The gates surrounding the reservoirs are still closed to all.
